OPINIONS, please-- i just opened this account because i need to help my mom and dad
Washing Machine, 27-inch SAL
purchase date: 09july08
Today, a humming noise began and it's there whenever the auger is enabled. So, when there's water in it during agitation, there's a humming. When there's no water in it, and it starts the spin cycle, there's a humming. It seems that it doesn't matter what the water level is.
Should we just run-this-thing-into-the-ground and keep using it (it IS working, albetit, with extra noise) or do you think that it MIGHT make sense for us to have it serviced?
I called Sears and they want to sell us a Master Protection Agreement for $100.
What do you think is best?
optionA: Leave it be and just use it while it lasts
OptionB: $100: Sears Master Protection Agreement
OptionC: $65 + parts & labor + whateverelse with local repair person
I KNOW we can still use it, as is. But, I'm just thinking of the possibility that "an ounce of prevention" might enable us to get a couplefew more years out of the appliance, you know? Thanks for reading my first post. I'm an network engineer-- if u have any related question, don't hestiate to ask me (i know compters as well).
